Why choose diesel?

Diesel engines are a popular choice for commercial trucks. Diesel is not petrol; unlike conventional internal combustion engines, diesel engines rely more on an extremely high compression ratio to ignite the fuel. This greatly improves fuel efficiency compared to its petrol counterpart of the same size. Diesel engines also produce twice the torque of petrol engines and rev considerably lower, making them ideal for heavy trailer work.

Performing well at low engine speeds is part of what helps improve efficiency and is key to the longevity of these systems. Hard-working petrol engines operate at high engine speeds and huge internal forces, leading to premature component wear and failure. While regular maintenance on diesel engines can be more frequent and expensive than on petrol engines, it is not uncommon for good diesel vehicles to travel over 400,000 miles because they do not need to work as hard to get significantly better results.

Diesel truck owners tend to be passionate about their brand, and for good reason. The models we're about to highlight appear in every discussion about the best diesel engines and the best trucks that use them. Whether your top priorities are reliability, price, value, efficiency, original capability or nostalgia and tradition, these used trucks and their excellent diesel engines can meet all of these requirements.

On average, the truck is serviced once every 80,000-100,000 kilometres, at a cost of more than 2,000 yuan, and the 1 million kilometres free maintenance, which is equivalent to saving me about 20,000 yuan!

Truck driver testimonial - POWERWIN CA4DK engine

Cross-province transport road conditions are complex, so the reliability and safety performance of the vehicle is taken into account. In the face of mountainous and hilly roads, the strength of the truck's power directly affects the punctuality of delivering goods. The J6L has strong power, and it can go up and down hills without any pressure. In addition, the Jiefang Power has self-developed in-cylinder braking technology, so it is no longer afraid of brake failure when running on hilly roads, and safety is also guaranteed. "It has been running for more than 320,000 kilometres and has basically never had any problems", and Master Lan is particularly fuel-efficient in the transportation process. At present, the comprehensive fuel consumption of this vehicle is about 17L per 100 kilometres, compared with other brands of the same power engine, the Jiefang Power Platinum Wei engine can save 1L of fuel per 100 kilometres, according to a round trip of 3000 kilometres, a trip down to save nearly 200 yuan, long-term calculation, at least 2000 yuan a month, a year is able to save more than 20,000.

The JCDecaux J6L is equipped with the PLA Wei CA4DK engine, which has more torque at low speed and accelerates more quickly. In addition, the low wind resistance design of the JLANG J6L also plays a big role in reducing fuel consumption, and at the same time, the JLANG J6L continues the characteristics of FAW Jiefang's long oil change intervals. This is not a small sum of money. Maximum savings for the user.
